MOUTH WATERING COCKTAILS
Added on: 2nd Sep 2015
This cocktail is a layered shot composed of a coffee liqueur, an
Irish cream, and a triple sec. When prepared properly, the
ingredients separate into three distinctly visible layers. Pour the
coffee liqueur into a shot glass, gently pour the Irish cream over the
back of a bar spoon into the shot glass and finish by pouring the
triple sec. Serve with a stirrer on the side. For a Flaming B-52, the
top layer is ignited, producing a blue flame.
Margarita is the most common tequila-based cocktail. It consists of
tequila, triple sec (such as Cointreau) and lime or lemon juice. Pour
the tequila, lemon juice and Cointreau into shaker with ice. Shake well
and strain into chilled cocktail glass rimmed with crusted salt (optional).
The Tequila Sunrise cocktail can be made in two different ways.
The more popular version was invented by Bobby Lazoff and Billy Rice
at The Trident in Sausalito, California in the early 1970s. Tequila
Sunrise is considered a long drink and is usually served in a highball glass.
Pour tequila, ice then juice and lastly syrup. The catch is getting the syrup
down without mixing it. Use a spoon to guide the syrup down the glass
wall to the bottom of the glass with minimal mixing. Garnish with
orange wedge and cherry and serve.
The history of the Cosmopolitan is disputed. However, it’s believed that
the Cosmopolitan has its roots in a cocktail with the same name found
in the book, “Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars” published in 1934. Pour
Cointreau, cranberry juice, lime juice, and lemon vodka into a cocktail
shaker filled with ice. Shake well, strain in large, cocktail glass, garnish
with lemon slice or lime wedge and serve. You can also frost the
glass and/or add sugar to the glass rim.
This strong cocktail is quite simple – you need just vodka, Cointreau
and apple liqueur. First, chill a glass with fresh ice and pour it out when
you are ready to pour the ingredients into the glass. Add the vodka,
Cointreau and apple schnapps into a mixing glass with ice cubes.
Stir well and strain in the chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a slice of apple and serve.
The Swimming Pool Cocktail was invented in 1979 by Charles Schumann
in Munich. The cocktail is made from vodka, cream, blue curacao,
cream of coconut, and pineapple juice. Pour the pineapple juice, vodka,
cream and cream of coconut with ice into a blender and blend until smooth.
Then, pour into a hurricane glass, float the blue curacao on top, add a straw
and garnish with a slice of pineapple.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
There is also a shot called Alice in Wonderland but we will stick with the
cocktail. It is made from Amaretto Almond Liqueur, Grand Marnier and
Southern Comfort. Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker
and strain into an ice filled rock glass.
Garnish with an orange wedge and serve.
